enable a different technological future. one that people are not the product. of the. morning to make you more if you get into one of them i'll pull you know wash your washed up over gaza you know. one more book you'll want to pick out of the public would want a crowd of them all when i could get that but. i feel like they know me well know that no harm no foul has been coming out all. over the. fact.
because really says that if you're going to. run the channel but i'll publish in the open it's going to bump a scottish but i was the thought something was on it and went on and on with. both the dominant of them and they had bought. all. the animals you know for. a sense of oh it's you it's you it's all about it before you joined your fantasy. was a blog days on seven mice but i said i must be sure i should be g.g. to go to some of the complex where so much to. get a check i got out of this business and yet i think the. little.
bit. east kissing scene him recently out on amazon mission to see sation ship danger would be a joy to v.j. day in this kind i'm going to use my. night human to look at the mansion on a night on the i can use mr shared with us where he had keef where little food ossetia. was. going to sell point and i want to help him buy the odd to fish by visual.
well look it's a. shoe it's a well actually. i will talk to some of the lift into. the store. was on a weekend message for. seal simply make else imprimis foskett stay up with this seal. watching the games live us saved my. father elam wish to allege what you let me through what got us to. name don't rush which is a few of the camilla's ullevi prophecy was a boy make a new genre the skittish they put their cage being the so moment. i
was up to him from my promise. to where. i am harlow home i'm a software developer and digital security trainer and i'm the lead architect of a library called informant camp which sits in the center of the camera free app. i mean i think you wrote this code to pull in anything that might exist pretty much
pretty much whatever you can why not because why not a couple of years ago i was in a class that nathan taught and for a project i had decided that i wanted to sink a video and images with their data points that were exposed in order to you know get a kind of who what when where why and possibly even how of a particular event that you see visually. around the world. there are a number of satellites. that are constantly orbiting our globe and they usually. beam down position info to devices such as our cell phones that have a pretty good accuracy and also have the unintended effect of giving us
a timestamp as well which we use rather than your phone's clock and order to tell what time it was if you're standing anywhere on earth and can receive g.p.s. signal your device is then able to triangulate where you are in relation to it and several of the sources that you also use to triangulate your position can also be used by camera to further cooperate where you are such as your cell phone tower or even nearby why fight networks right now there's more photos more videos than ever being put in from social media into court they called open source right in the legal process where they go out and source things off the open web and then use that as evidence for instance but the process of verifying who and what and when it's really this manual labor you have to go back and kind of dig through all of this to kind of piece it together. and what we're trying to do is just. create that from the start so creating a kind of d.n.a.
inside the visual media itself such that it's there from the beginning. or. what's interesting about open source development especially with android software is that just about everything is accessible using an a.p.i. an a.p.i. being an application programming interface is kind of like a door that allows you to access certain. certain aspects of the phone and this case especially with camera v. it was an interface to the hardware screens. right the springs. we used to build a fix things ourselves and understand how they work and now they're you know almost hermetically sealed behind you know many tiny screws all of which we have to find a special screwdriver for. if you open it up you actually see it really is simply a computer inside of this case. this is the camera it's quite powerful and it's got
a jar interface on the back for the motherboard this is where all the data flows and inside here we have the lens and the sensors that focus and capture the light and turn it into you have it right and this is where it then flows into the motherboard through the bus which is then captured into the general purpose c.p.u. that powers the android operating system. so usually when someone talks about taking a picture what they mean is using a photographic sensor to capture a visible light emanating from a subject a person or a place when we talk about taking a picture we're actually talking about capturing a much broader spectrum of energy like infrared spectrum and radio waves and speed in gravity and other atmosphere is energy. coming in that you don't perceive with
your eyes fortunately for us smartphone devices have additional sensor components that can gather things. to really talk about taking a picture it's about gathering the full spectrum of the visible and the invisible interim working through. this is the tricky part to this but maybe i can get a job here fixing cell phone yari have a job thanks no it's tough it's a different kind of job. she's android. but now i've been thinking about committing myself to i phone again because the go go go cross compiling on the i phone no i would never use and i found out that. they're pretty nice.
but i am not really a fan of. the particular barrier to entry that they place for people who want to get started developing yeah i think on a theoretical level i you know kind of push back against apple because of that i also think about it a star trek or star wars a little bit and there it is star wars i thought it starts. yeah when you think the opposite well i guess if i were to make any. any argument although i definitely do get what you mean i think android lends itself more to federation. than the iowa system does and also quite frankly what it boils down to is i like star trek.
so you guys have the the force ready. the camera view up is already installed although it should be on your home screen so you know for a corner. selects. once promoters activate it it's all the work it sort of works like a little black box recorder or some some other they are right like do you guys know what meditators so it's information about the video and the generic to finish unformatted the race datable data here in the united states the word meant a day that has been all over the news. because of the secret program of the and it's a collecting method data for phone calls. ensure that the data can be used to corroborate what the new image shows or want to witness. tell tells about
what's happening in the image and it can be used to reveal additional contextual information about poulticing so it works in the background and now you can open your favorite camera app or just the camera that's the default camera on the phone and you can start shooting just the usual way you do this you don't have to do anything different at this point it just it works in the background to records your information and automatically imports all this into a camera view we can go outside and come back. to we're going to do this exercise we're going to use it to the government we're going to use. and we're going to document with. you we have a number of people we have four members that she will. we have witness on the front right now at this time we have a pretty unique style. you feel good let's look at the cinema this is the funniest
movie i mean it's about i said you know most of it i mean one at my get out film about the. song you know i'm feeling like i'm spitting and beginning to think it's going to be for something which should not be on the character cast accounts if you are going to see that's going to follow that come into play with with me to believe with some quite tough mission that there's no one no no no. no. no i'm part of it either but that one. i just asked like if there were any. let's particular experiences that they've had or situations where the where the functionalities of the immediately thought could be used but it came to stop it forces and move it to call for with you if you must think i should. say what's going on here john you know or i'm down on somebody's cell phone it up until i have no idea if it was a from woman who told me on this you know police you know they just say i think i
might ask you guys i never met him but i have watched. but that's like it's often little that's i think. really. the name of your project kind of infamous now a bigger brother because the vision was the sum total of power of our individual smartphone cameras connected was greater than the big brothers you through surveillance technology through cameras on the street closed circuit surveillance cameras so in the past you know we with when we think about the mission of surveillance we think about these you know really tall poles with big ominous time around siena staring down at us from every street corner and i think it's really exciting when we invert that and we think about you know soon failing to circumscribe the french top down and sue inverts that bottom up right so the suv
aliant is really how we watch back and you know ultimately we have more cameras than they do because we're the people. in the sunset park and by the group coming in i'll buy off. the world with cooperation i think so but it is one that i meant you're going to put it on the domain with about a couple had fights on a complex item oh i don't know if i valued as i can assume being cheated by my zinc woman was. so stressed only going to put it out you got the brazilian cop watch now that we've got a lot of people out there how do you feel i mean this is a humbling you know i just feel like part of a group i do that you know it's going to raise him and like film the police.
is a crazy you know for you. know. we got we got forty eight gig s d. we loaded. seventy three so what would be where i would definitely be at because look how ready so that right there is telling me there's a lot of complaints given by civilians about police misconduct in that precinct and some might say so my the things i. say again i've made to the my pm me aren't here politically so we used the c.c. . we used a y p d map and we also used the n. saw that we gather from people in the street and when you thought of. the name i saw. daisy sell a lot of bra. i'm a how the i'm a shill i'm a shop bell lead this is something the spreading globally you know people naturally instinctively know that pulling out a cell phone camera you're going to record and this is something that you can now
do social media and let the world see that's you know a shift in who controls what. but if you don't know systemic keep he just going to see my i had to digest we're going to play some edge of. him talking just going to somebody who also then is. that from a technological police formation went to. get them out of some of the not you put out a lot i just don't believe. isn't the message they mean by whom we. let
the book. look pretty good unless you want to salute directionality. own that really was reinforced today so if you. see the phone with us. and there's a special you want to take a look at the many data here. but actually let's see previous themselves. yeah so this one house and cell tower. data and that. but what was interesting and i'm not necessarily sure if we have it but. mostly it's the wife by network haha and why that's interesting obviously is because. it puts you like in
a specific place at this person killer time. and also like the white lie level that that you have there. gives a little bit of sense of your like you know proximity and like even kind of directionality how you're facing in in regards to that life i see you know the just the very fact of having a trajectory for a video from start to finish with direction our you know whole night is i mean first and foremost from that we didn't treat perspective what you trust but from the storytelling perspective we can really think about how to leverage that right to the point of i think this entire project is that we want to be able to believe what we see and we want to be able to establish trust with the people who are showing us things that we see so it's not just instagram for activists this is serious business. the.
up inside i see they're going to inject them into the mozilla from the mostly from i hear the guards. most companies must act as if they can always tell me one thing sam or me composed of it on themselves and gone. on. good evening my name is even holding time as i me executive director with this there's one group who is amazing they are just smartest they are the most effective and they are debris so mine warner is to work with. both. who had to go
i'm going to go everywhere connectivity this paramount. for infrastructure and the pen and some form corporation means to many remain offline now a politician and tech activists are building a homegrown solution could not one of us and secure the nation's technological sovereignty. rebel geek's the citizens network at this time does either. one of the really special things that work in progress here is that even as a camera woman i get to have so much empathy and contribution to
a story i feel we cover this region better than anyone else would be foolish as you know is that it turns liberally but the good because you have a lot of people that are divided on political issues we are we the people we live to tell the real stories are just mended is to deliver in-depth generalism we don't feel inferior to the audience across the globe. a survivor of the genocide or people who beg me to kill them to end their suffering but it wouldn't have the heart has dedicated his life to searching the woods for bones of the victims of the srebrenica massacre. knowing them here is the two of. you no hope of finally laying the parts to rest and giving peace to the victims' families because you need to if i could just find to think about i could bury him bone hunter at this time on al-jazeera. in a country beset by poverty and lack of infrastructure. sometimes we risk our lives
in taking these votes with cattle saving lives is a dangerous job the vaccines talks on a good twenty four hours there are patients waiting because medicines who must be in pain life's worth risking a week ago one of the gang stops some vehicles on the road attacking it with weapons risking it all guinea at this time on al jazeera. i really believe they are sincere i hope they're sincere we're going to soon find. cautious optimism from the u.s. as north korea says it is willing to discuss ending its nuclear program. james douglas.
